My question is very similar to this one:

Changing hex color of a graphic

I just want to change the hex color of the shell graphic from #53767F to #375459:

enter image description here

According to the top answer in that question, I need to add a solid color adjustment layer above the image and enter the hex color that I want in the field.

That's what I'm trying to do - I'm adding a solid color adjustment layer by doing:

Layer > New Fill Layer, and choose an option - Solid Color, Gradient, or Pattern. Name the layer, set layer options, and click OK.

Well, this seems to change the background to the color that I'm looking for, but not the actual color of the shell graphic. What am I doing wrong here? The blend mode was set to color, as was suggested. I also tried changing the blend mode to hue, but it didn't seem to make a difference. The background is still there. I just want to make the shell graphic a darker green - #375459 - and preserve the transparent background.

If your pattern (I mean your artwork) is non-transparent, I think you just need blending mode Normal only. Then you can add a solid color layer (#375459) and use it as a clipping mask. You should get what you need.

What you're doing wrong: I think the problem is just blend mode you've set.

You can also use Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options > Color Overlay.

(Since I didn't have original PNG image, I just used quick selection tool to remove background just to explain).

A simpler approach, is to just click the 'fx' icon at the bottom and select 'color overlay':

and select the new hex color of the color overlay here:
